2011-08-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)On a scale from 1 to Bacon, how much better is Arodys Vizcaino than Scott Proctor?
(aCone419 from ATL)
Texas brisket (Jason Parks)
2011-05-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm not sure a team could pull of a 4-man rotation, but I see no reason a team couldn't pull off a 6-man bullpen - and so a 14-man bench. Its not for every team - the Pirates, say, probably couldn't do it. You'd need very reliable starters, and you couldn't carry a LOOGY - but its doable. This wouldn't be a radical change - most fans and probably a good number of writers probably don't know who the 7th guy in a bullpen is. Why hasn't someone tried it yet? (As a side note - if the Rays didn't have so many younger starters, and such a flexible bench, I'd expect Maddon to do it. Maybe in a couple of years?)
(Shaun P. from Medway, MA)
I'm pretty sure Joe Torre didn't know who the seventh guy in his bullpens was either. His memory tended to stop at Scott Proctor. We've also seen teams win championships without a LOOGY, an evolutionary dead end if I've ever seen one, and I'm not just talking about my first girlfriend's mother. You're right, though, and the Phillies could do this. You keep that last pitcher at Triple-A and call him if you really need him. Teams seem to think of their rosters as Swiss Army knives--you have to be prepared for every eventuality, hence the 3rd catchers on some teams -- a meteor might strike both backstops. Dudes, if you lose one game due to a shortage of catchers fine; you might win several more with more flexibility the rest of the time. (Steven Goldman)
2010-10-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)On Girardi for a second, was I the only Yankees fan who was a little nervous that he WOULD leave? Look, I hate some of his in-game management but he has constructed a very successful bullpen our of scraps in three straight years. He doesn't fall into small ball traps as often as other prestigious managers (Maddon) and, at the very least, he has an open mind about unorthodox maneuvering. I'm not Girardi's biggest fan but I still feel oddly comfortable with him.
(Adam from NY)
The bullpen rebuilding thing is a big point in his favor. That's a real skill. After Mariano Rivera, you know how many relievers Joe Torre established in 13 years? Scott Proctor? Maybe? Girardi has broken in more pitchers in three seasons than the old man did in more than a decade. I also appreciate his being willing to bat a power-hitter second, be it Swisher or Granderson. Tactically he's not all there, but few managers these days are John McGraw. On the whole, I think he's positive, even if in other aspects of his thinking, like closer usage and those bloody IBBs, he's too conventional. (Steven Goldman)
2008-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)More of a philosophical mechanics question. Using Craig Hansen as an example. when he came up, his motion seemed doomed to injury. Someone (the Sox or BorasCo.) had him change it to a more normal release, which made him even less effective. Now, he has returned to the short-arming that looks opretty bad, but has yielded slightly better, although inconsistent results. In your view, does a team have any "obligation" (for lack of a better word) to get a pitcher away from a "dangerous, but effective" motion, if such a motion means only short term success (a year or two), before an injury which even the team thinks is inevitable?
(ekanenh from a desk)
Great question. Hanson's not the best example here, but BJ Ryan is. From the time he was drafted, everyone knew he had terrible mechanics. The Reds rushed him up, traded him as quickly as they could for good value, and expected his arm to explode. Eventually it did but much later than everyone expected and with just a year off, he's back to his bad mechanics and good results. Should he have been changed? His accountant doesn't think so. There's a balance between effectiveness and health, but it's one that's difficult to read. I think the team is obliged to get the most value out of a player as they can. That might be running a guy out there like Torre did with Scott Proctor. Had the Twins kept Johan Santana, I would have wanted them to run him out there for as many innings as possible. Heck, I'd have sent the bullpen home on days he pitched. It's not very compassionate, but you know what, there's wins and losses, not style points. (Will Carroll)
